<strong>Redstorm I have to agree. With 3 top 50 picks how do you end up with only 1 player Gruler. Both Schramek and Votto rated between 240-250 seem like extreme reaches.
Are these guys related to people who are Reds scouts?? Seems odd we reach that far twice in 1st 3 picks.
Hopefully the Reds scouts know something everyone else doesn't about the pair.</strong></font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Well they drafted Schramek last year so I would imagine they really wanted him and were afraid to wait. Votto is Canadian I believe. He could have very well come in under some radars.
I think it is a good draft so far. Not every player drafted is going to make it to the Majors. It is just as important, in my opinion, to establish a winning environment at every level of the organization. I can imagine several of these guys jumping right into Dayton to give the Offense a boost.
